Apple Cedar Rust

Did I blow it by pruning off all the branches from my serviceberry that was severely diseased with apple cider rust? I now have a clump of 3' sticks with no leaves. I know I acted hastily, but it's too late. =(

there shouldnt be many things in the garden.. that require such immediate response.. you found us.. next time.. give us a few days to make recommendations .... in other words.. next time.. dont panic ....
